The Veršomat is another project that brings poetry into the public space. It is constructed from discarded train timetable cylinders to create a unique bower. We see these cylinders as a part of the poetic atmosphere of train stations that is slowly disappearing. We would like to give them a new lease of life and a place in the city’s daily routine. The actual timetables have been replaced by a selection of Chinese lyrical poetry, Japanese haikus and their Czech counterparts.
